Despite this, fate decreed they would meet again, unaware of their blissful entanglement in the past.
Confronted by the shocking revelation, the couple is forced to address how important their relationship is and whether it's better to feel the heartache of losing someone you love or not know what it meant to be in love with that person. If only such a cerebral machine that could erase memory existed! Would you wipe someone from your mind to be as if you never knew them? I know I would!
